It’s almost Christmas, and again, it’s a time of giving and of making our friends and happy. But do you have any ideas what to buy for friends who are math teachers, mathematicians, and enthusiasts? Below are 8 gift ideas.
1.) Coffee Mug
Many math teachers and math enthusiasts love to drink coffee. Paul Erdos once said that a mathematician is a machine for turning coffee into theorems. This mug will be perfect.
2.) Abacus Keychain
Calculations can be done using calculators. Or, using an abacus.
Let your math friends keep track of time with this geeky wall clock.
If your friend loves problem solving, here’s one of the best books that you can give them. I have personally read this book and I think it’s a very good resource for problem solving. For more advanced problem solvers, you can also buy The Art of Problem Solving, Vol. 2: And Beyond.
This Compass and Geometry Kit contains a number of Geometry tools. Included in the kit are compass, straightedge, pencil, eraser, and sharpener.
If your friends love necklaces, give them this Fibonacci necklace pendant.
